Saturday, 10/20, 6:20pm (Session VII)

Director: Russell Kilbey
Producer: Russell Kilbey, Amy Scully, Ian Walker 


Mark Boerebach lives in a black and white world, but he dreams in color.
A nearly blind recluse with Asperger's Syndrome, can he break out of his constrictive routine and show his amazing music chart recall on a live TV quiz show? Along the way we have some incredible insights into Mark's sad and remarkable life. Socially ostracized his whole life, he has an encyclopedic knowledge of the Australian music charts. Though plagued by anxieties, he is an endearing figure as he reveals his bizarre relationship to a now-defunct plastic bottle and his double life as an Astronaut/Media Baron in a place called Earth 2.


Russell Kilbey is a well-known musician, sound engineer and composer whose music and sound design has been used in TVCs, documentaries and feature films. He taught the world’s first university course in blogging and podcasting. He now teaches music production and filmmaking at a technical college. He has directed and edited several short documentaries, including Long Way from Home (2007), with Kirinari Aboriginal Hostel for The Aboriginal Advancement Society. Courage is a Telescope (2007) is a program about 18 boys who explore their Asperger's Syndrome. He is currently shooting a documentary in the Blue Mountains, called Last riders of the Burragorang. Russell has a graduate diploma in media arts and production UTS. Rainman Goes to RocKwiz is his television debut as a director. He is a keen Guerrilla gardener.
